Safety Code Permits

Safety codes are in place to ensure safety for us all. The codes are developed by Alberta Municipal Affairs in partnership with the Safety Codes Council to provide relevant information to the building industry, designers and municipal development authorities. As of January 1, 2019, Alberta Safety Codes Authority (ASCA) is overseeing safety and compliance monitoring (permitting and inspections) within Athabasca County.

Athabasca County is not accredited under the Alberta Safety Codes Act for construction permitting and does not issue Building, Electrical, Gas, Plumbing or Private Sewage Disposal System permits.
